United will top Christmas table no matter what
So the heavy snow has ruined the weekend for most football fans – and it may get worse. All the cancellations have distorted the Premier League table to such an extent that should Manchester City take all three points from Everton on Monday night, we will see an improbable sight that only happens once in a ‘blue moon’, City sitting on top of the table on Christmas day.
As far as I’m concerned, that will completely destroy my festive season and I suggest most United fans as well. It’s simply not on, so I’ve decided to ignore all the published league ladders and only take notice of my own which is based on LEAST points LOST rather than the traditional MOST points WON.
This is how the table will look for the top 5 on Christmas morning if the City game goes ahead at Eastlands and IF they manage to defeat Everton – by no means a certainty.
